Effia Nkwanta receives heartwarming gestures from two families in appreciation for excellent services
Some events of phenomenal significance in the recent life of Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital are gestures performed by clients to show appreciation for the excellent services they received when their wards were in-patients. There have been several heartwarming expressions of appreciation usually from families or caregivers about the polite reception and quality treatment they received at the hospital. Unfortunately only a silent minority get to hear.
However, there are a few of such clients who decided to bring the good works of the hospital to light. Within a period of two months, two different families in Takoradi have, in their own small way, come to Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital to show genuine appreciation for the level of commitment demonstrated to them by the hospital staff who, despite the teething challenges of the hospital, handled them with quality sense of respect and urgency.
First is the Clement family of Takoradi who are thankful for the care of their child, Araba Amuaba Clement at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when she was delivered a preterm baby a few years ago. The family showed appreciation for the outcome of the excellent care by presenting very important equipment to the hospital. They include a microhematocrit centrifuge, rechargeable pulse oximeters, suction machines and ventilation bags. The family expressed special thanks to Dr John Kweku Eghan and Dr Yaa Nkansah, of the Pediatrics Unit for their leadership.
The second gesture was performed by a couple which celebrated a decade in their marriage with a presentation to support the excellent services of Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital.
Mr. Anthony Boakye Saka and Mrs Rosemond Ellen Boakye Saka presented two air conditioners, an indoor and outdoor unit to lessen the plight of staff and clients at the pediatrics unit.
The donation of the two air conditioners was through the suggestion of Dr. Nana Esi Gaisie of the pediatric unit who narrated the plight of staff and clients at the unit. She expressed profound gratitude to the couple for heeding to her suggestion and promised that the air conditioners would be put to good use.
The couple encouraged staff and management of the Hospital not to relent on their oars and promised to do more to ease the plight of staff and encourage quality care.
